    Plague death toll rises in China

    BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Plague death toll rises in China

    A third man has died of pneumonic plague in north-western China where a town of more than 10,000 people has been sealed off, officials say.

    The 64-year-old man was a neighbour of the first two people to die from the plague in Ziketan in Qinghai Province.

    Police have set up checkpoints around Ziketan, as medics are disinfecting the area and killing rats and insects.

    Pneumonic plague, which attacks the lungs, can spread from person to person or from animals to people.


    WHO watching China plague cases 'closely'
    A spokeswoman for the World Health Organization, Vivian Tan, earlier said an outbreak such as this was always a concern, but praised the Chinese for reacting quickly and for getting the situation under control.
    The pneumonic plague?!?!?! That is all we need coming out of Asia again!!! Thoughts?

    Listen, Asians have a right to come here and infect us all if they want to. Just like the Mexicans and Central Americans do.

    Every really cool killer bug comes out of China. It's one of their leading exports.
